Q & A: Submission Outside Jurisdiction

CIC News
Published: April 1, 1997

Q. I read in India Abroad that there was a proposal to discontinue the practice of allowing immigration via a third country. Is this true?

So, If I am an Indian national, working in the USA and try to apply for a Canadian PR (from USA), will I become ineligible?

Answer: Canadian Immigration policy specifically allows for the submission of applications outside of the jurisdiction in which the applicant resides. This policy also advocates that such applications should not be unduly delayed. There are no suggestions, at this time, that this policy is to be universally removed.
